Pear Varieties

Bartlett 
Leading pear for canning and fresh market sales. Large, golden yellow fruit with a slight blush. Smooth, juicy, tender white flesh. Partially self-fruitful. 

Hailey Red™(c.LT1)
A sport of the Bartlett pear, Hailey Red is the best Red Bartlett discovered to date. It is just like the Bartlett, except it has an exceptional red color. It ripens the same time as the Bartlett. It is very juicy with white flesh. It does not need a pollinizer. Storage life is better than Bartlett, and holds red color better than other red pear varieties.
